Best ribs in a long time!

Went to the restaurant with a group of four people. I made an easy reservation via the website. Three of us had the BBQ Ribs. They were very tasty, the meat nearly dropped of the bone while touching it. Ribs are all you can eat! The prices are ok and the servers are very friendly.

In hindsight, I should have taken into account the comments that were posted here about this restaurant, as I can confirm them now. The ribs were just cooked, not grilled, and splashed with too much of a not-so-tasty BBQ sauce. For a restaurant which is called 'Ribs' they should know better. Also only BBQ ribs is an option. If you... More

We went here with a group of six friends on a Tuesday night in December. The à volonté BBQ ribs are really the best you'll get in Leuven. Other dishes are also available (scampi, steak,...). For drinks, the "Ommegang" complements the ribs perfectly!

ribs is only a small restaurant but they do have outdoor seating. We ate there at a prime time on Friday night and the service, friendly young staff and the food for all for of us was first class. We all shared a bowl of fogs legs in a garlic butter sauce which were delicious. I opted for a glass... More

Been back to this restaurant for many years now, the food is very good and well priced. There is always a great atmosphere and the young staff are attentive and always ensure you have enough ribs which you can eat as much as you like!! Also had chicken skewers, steak and the Mexican burger all of which were perfectly cooked... More

I recently tried “Ribs” while visiting Leuven and it was just ok. Our server was very nice and the portions were actually very good. Unfortunately, my wife’s Penne Arrabiata simply had no spice. To be fair, it did have flavor, but not the spice we prefer. As for my chicken burger, it was a disappointment. Rather than the chicken breast... More
